Alabama Crimson Tide Moves to 10-0 After Second Straight Shutout

"Any time you win a game in the SEC, obviously concerned with having an emotional hangover after the LSU game, I think that may be true to some degree, our players need to learn that you have to be able to play every week".

The nation's No. 2 scoring defense never allowed the Bulldogs to mount much of an attack as Alabama improved to 10-0 on the season.

Tagovailoa didn't have a strong night as he was 14-of-21 passing for 164 yards, a touchdown and threw his second interception of the season before leaving the game early. Five Alabama sacks kept MSU from advantageous third-down positions.

Nick Fitzgerald can, and will, run the ball, which is historically the type of quarterback that gives Alabama fits. However, a good bit of the college football media thinks that this game's officials have some money on the line with Alabama to win and cover.

(4) MI 42, Rutgers 7: Shea Patterson threw for 260 yards and three touchdowns, Karan Higdon had two 1-yard scoring runs and the Wolverines kept their national championship hopes intact with a win over the Scarlet Knights in Piscataway, New Jersey. They marched down the field on the opening drive with a nine-play, 73-yard sequence ending in a touchdown. "It means we got the job done". "We continue to fight our tails off".

For the first time this season, the Tide were held under 500 yards. That's the type of pride and physicality we play with defensively.

Mississippi State drove down to the Alabama 11-yard line, but its quest to put points on the board was derailed by a five-yard penalty for delay of game and an eight-yard sack on a blitz that got to Fitzgerald nearly as soon as he received the snap.

(5) Georgia 27, Auburn 10: Georgia struck for a pair of touchdowns late in the first half to take control and D'Andre Swift finished off the Tigers with a 77-yard scoring run early in the fourth quarter as the Bulldogs cruised in Athens, Georgia.

The Tide looked the part of the dominating offense they've been all year through the first quarter.

On Alabama's first possession vs. Mississippi State they benefited from a lack of a review of a questionable play.

"[We] had some opportunities throughout the game, but too many miscues", Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead said. Defense had 10 tackles for loss and Alabama didn't commit a penalty.

Wimbush completed 12 of 25 passes for 130 yards and tossed touchdown strikes to fellow seniors Miles Boykin (6 yards) and Alize Mack (6 and 15 yards).

Left guard Deonte Brown went down with turf toe, which Saban said would be more of an issue for him concerning next week's game.

The victory is the 24th consecutive home win for Alabama, tying the school record set from 1971-74.

The image of Tagovailoa limping off the field had everyone in Bryant-Denny Stadium holding their breath.

One week after Alabama bludgeoned LSU to death, the Tide are back in action taking on another SEC West foe: Mississippi State.

Alabama returns to Bryant-Denny on November 17 for its game against Citadel.
